Don' t let the title shock you too much - it's just the truth. I'm barely on here enough to blam and save some flashes, check my userpage, and deposit my experience points anymore. I still love Newgrounds and hunger to go on a posting frenzy once again, but I just can't. I'm gone way too much so I'm usually not on the computer for more than five or ten minutes now. Real life has caught up with me, and it's going fast. I might not even have a computer for a while when I move in with my girlfriend. I need to get a full time job and pay bills and balance my check register and file taxes. It's weird to think of all this responsibility pouring out of a kid in a grown man's body.
First off, I love the general and the other forums like Clubs & Crews I used to visit religiously. Unforunately, it's been lacking in quality and luster lately, and it's no big secret. When I first started to get into the Newgrounds lifestyle I was intimidated by all the clever and seriously hilarious posters of the day. That was the summer of when I would be going into the eighth grade. A year later, I posted like a mad man. I wish I knew what my original post count was because it was higher than the DIABEETUS guy's blood sugar levels. My schedule revolved around this place.
I always wanted to achieve that same level of posting bliss, but failed and fell short every time. My post count slowly decreased over time. Sure, I still posted regularly, but not as much, and in intervals. Sometimes I wouldn't post for days and feel left out and post a shitload over the weekend or something, then get tired of it. Getting a girlfriend nearly stopped it in its tracks, but I never gave up. Now I'm finally realizing that I'm growing up, and silly numbers don't really concern me. I'm too tired and stressed or busy to worry about it anymore.
It feels like a chore whenever I lurked the general. I barely found any interesting or funny threads. I haven't been there in a month. I stopped checking Clubs & Crews and Video Games in the past couple of weeks. I don't think I ever was a regular in the first place, it's more than just a post count, it's about popularity. I'm not saying I'm not unknown or anything, but I was left out of a lot of fads and whatnot. It's not a hard fact to accept.
So it is with a semi-heavy heart that I semi-reluctantly declare that the posts shall stop commencingeth thence forth. Thrice I have tried to reclaim my past valiance and posting victories, but have finally crumbled and proudly succeeded. I'd rather go out with dignity. So, to all my close friends and those who made the BBS worth going to, for the laughs and the good times, and for serious topics and interesting opinions, I thank thee all. Now BEGONE!
EDIT - If you still want to keep in touch with me, drop me a PM, add me on Facebook (if you specified what user you were that'd be terrific), and you can ask for my number if you want even. Otherwise, I will post only rarely.
